Broadway Speakers Toastmasters Club @ Key Bank Building - 25th Floor Conference Room
May 3 @ 12:10 pm – 1:00 pm
Broadway Speakers Toastmasters Club @ Key Bank Building - 25th Floor Conference Room | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs.

In our community of learners, people improve their communication and leadership skills by filling meeting roles, ranging from giving a prepared or an impromptu speech to serving as timer, evaluator or grammarian. There is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is critiqued by a member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done correctly and what could be improved.

The Broadway Speakers club is known for our warm and friendly environment. We cater to people working in the downtown Salt Lake City area. Our meetings (scheduled for each Tuesday) are held to under an hour, from 12:10 to 1:00, in order to fit within busy calendars. Visit us and see if the club is a good fit for you!

May 5 @ 7:00 pm
Jung Society of Utah Presents: The Wilderness of the Wisdom of Your Body @ Salt Lake City Downtown Library | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Title: The Wisdom in the Wilderness of Your Body

Description: Distinct from the approach of living and healing that is based primarily in intellect and language, the living territory of embodiment, as beautiful, wild, unpredictable and vibrantly alive as the wilderness, offers vast untapped wisdom that can benefit not only individual healing and evolution but that of our world. As we re-center ourselves in the living experience of embodied aliveness, new possibilities emerge, along with an empowering way of knowing, being, and moving in the world.

About the speakers: Erin Geesaman Rabke and Carl Rabke have each steeped in wisdom traditions and embodied practices for more than 20 years. Trained as Embodied Life Teachers, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners, yoga instructors, tai chi players, and long-time meditators; Carl also works as a Structural Integrator. They bring a wealth of embodied knowledge and teaching experience which they are dedicated to sharing with others. Their online home and much-loved writings can be found at www.bodyhappy.com

ACME: What’s Hip-Hop Got to Do with Education? @ Salt Lake City Public Library, Glendale Branch
May 11 @ 6:30 pm
ACME:  What's Hip-Hop Got to Do with Education? @ Salt Lake City Public Library, Glendale Branch | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

We’re examining hip-hop as a force for teaching and learning—from the corner to the classroom. Based on the idea that knowledge is the “fifth element” of hip-hop, we will ask questions such as: What kinds of learning take place through hip-hop? How can hip-hop culture help us rethink our approach to education?

The session will be an inclusive, multigenerational dialogue featuring short presentations and performances from local artists and educators led by Jarred Martinez, Anita Juarez, Saia Langi, and Rudy Medina of Truth Cypher—a local community of writers, storytellers, and spoken word artists; Luis López, University of Utah senior and Programs Coordinator at Artes de México de Utah; and Paul Kuttner, Education Pathways Partnership Manager at University Neighborhood Partners.
